    Admittedly, I do both, depending on the image. I'm sure it shows.

    I see; it's that kind of game. Sounds interesting, I'll take more of a look into it when I get the chance.

    Two Noh masks. Don't know how I came up with the idea, considering I know nothing about it. They do have very interesting shapes to draw though.

    You think so? The face just looks all wrong to me. The snout is too high, and the eyes are derped. But thank you. ^^

    Smooth lines?
    You start with a huge canvas, and you zoom out. You use slightly too big a brush size, and then, when you have the general idea, you use fine eraser work to get rid of excess.

    It is totally different from using a pencil, and quite frankly is a pain in the plot.
    Yeah, it's a pain alright. That's pretty much what I do, though my lines should probably be thicker. Maybe I need to zoom out more and go for quicker strokes. Or something.

    Anyway, I started work on another pic. Didn't progress very far; I have a habit of starting too late, then I'm tired and get irritable when things go wrong. I'll try and start drawing earlier in the day from now on. I'm hoping this one will be good though.

    Madcrafter, you're doing well but your clothes still all look really flat. I advise looking for some kind of tutorial on clothing folds (I used an art book so I don't have a good link), and/or drawing people without much clothes on so you get a better feel for body shape.

    Sub objective for myself, too. Legs!

    Oh, right, yes. I get you.
    Well, Robo-Ponithid's backstory, so to speak, has been filtered through and formed via ponythread hijinks and is quite involved at this point.

    Suffice to say, Robo Ponithid is a good pony and does not eat brains*.

    *The above statement assumes we put asside whether a robot built in the shape of a pony bio-engineered in a blender run-off vat is infact a pony, or capable of genuine sentience enough as to qualify as anything more than an object and therrefor be said to be a morally good or bad anything. Not setting these other factors aside may result in metaphysical questionings of the nature of life and biological versus synthetic existence. Either way, Robo Ponithid does not eat brains, however.

    I was going for a mix of terror and abject fear, but that much emotion is difficult to express without a mouth. It ended up as vague uncertainty instead.

    It seems appropriate somehow. Also, that's also an In-Character problem.

    Siuis requested some art, over in Ponythread itself. For some reason, I decided to art the art instead of, say, getting to bed.

    Ponies are Faithful Song (Lix Lorn) in the poster, Metal Mask (Thanqol) on the floor, and Raz_Fox's OC Talespinner doing the Psy, Gangnam style thing.


    It turned out rather okay, I think, though it's strayed a little from Siuis's original suggestion/request.

    How can the pony in the poster be smiling so happily while its legs are so horribly broken? The general atmosphere of the piece works well, though the poster, despite being dark, still jumps out a little too much from the solid black wall.

    Ponies are made of marshmallow and rubber. Also, you know, I totally forget to pay any attention at all to the way that pony legs are supposed to be jointed.

    Also, it's a picture in a picture, so clearly the pony who drew that particular recruitment poster had a very flexible model to work from.
    Suffice to say that no ponies were harmed in the production of the image or its constituant pieces, though Mask was at least mildly inconvenienced.

    That's, uh, supposed to be a tree stump.

    Also, didn't have time to fix Fluttershy's cutie mark. Probably because I took a break for dinner midway through.

    Her rear hooves need to be thicker too.
    Just call me Diego. Mr. Havoc was my father.
